Then, I opened the washing machine after the load was finished -- I glanced in our frontloader a few times and kept seeing a blue hue in there, but thought surely that I was seeing things.
I.WAS.NOT. I wish I had pictures to prove it, but could I make this up?
Seriously ... I opened the washer and to my shock EVERY diaper in the washing machine -- all the inserts to our Bumgenius 3.0s, the inside portion of several BG AIO Organics, several WAHM pockets and even a few Goodmama fitteds were BLUE --- like THIS hue. I'm not exagerrating.
There was a pen in the diaper pail -- which, not really to my surprise, must have been a toddler thing :O) I should've checked, I know. But who would check for pens inside the diaper pail? :P I will now :O) The entire pen exploded and was almost unrecognizable!
I thought about half of our stash was going to be a pretty shade of blue -- seriously, inserts and all ... because I just knew the only thing that I might could get it out with was chlorine bleach and I wasn't really willing to go that far.
But, I convinced myself to throw them in the bathtub in hot water and several tablespoons of Crunchy Clean OXYGEN cleaner ....
And they came out a pretty shade of WHITE from soaking overnight -- nothing else, just hot water and oxygen cleaner. :O)
Ahhh, normal looking diapers once again.
